Mitt Romney’s Anti-Legal Immigration Stance

While everyone is debating over Mitt Romney's millions, issues involving Romney's stance on immigration, legal and illegal, are unfolding rapidly.  For instance, Romney was endorsed by Kris Kobach, the architect behind Arizona's SB 1070 and Alabama's HB 56. This may not be a surprise to many but Kris Kobach is also "part of the legal arm of the Federation for American Immigration Reform (F.A.I.R.)." Is this proof enough to Romney's hard flip on Immigration and was Newt actually correct when he said Romney is anti-immigration? Arguably so.

“I’m so proud to earn Kris’s support,” said Mitt Romney. “Kris has been a true leader on securing our borders and stopping the flow of illegal immigration into this country. We need more conservative leaders like Kris willing to stand up for the rule of law. With Kris on the team, I look forward to working with him to take forceful steps to curtail illegal immigration and to support states like South Carolina and Arizona that are stepping forward to address this problem.”

Last year, F.A.I.R. created an ad (embedded below) against legal and illegal immigration. I think it's FAIR to say this organization is full of nativists and Romney is their guy  to make all immigration illegal.
